Caley Thistle have installed electric car charging facilities at Caledonian Stadium which will be free for all users for the next 12 months.
The Scottish Championship outfit received funding from Transport Scotland through a programme managed by the Energy Saving Trust to install the machine in the club car park, which allows three vehicles to be charged at the same time.
Inverness chief executive Scot Gardiner hopes the facility can help the club benefit from increased footfall given the ground’s proximity to the A9 and North Coast 500.
Gardiner said: “It puts the club on the map in a different way.
“The plans going for a huge new A9 road junction will make it even more accessible than it is right now. The idea is that there will be more and more people coming here.
“We are 20 minutes away from Loch Ness, where so many tourists come. We are looking at all sorts of reasons for people to come to this football club.”
Ellie Grebenik, senior programme manager of Scottish Transport’s Energy Saving Trust said: “It’s fantastic the club have agreed to host one of our charging points.
“The Electric A9 is a commitment from Transport Scotland to make sure everybody can travel all the way up Scotland in an electric vehicle and have somewhere to charge.
“Having hubs like this is really essential to help promote the electric car network in Scotland.”
